why buy a fixed lens camera at a 800$ or more when I could buy PENTAX K3 AT this price.
Me too for one with 85mm f1.4. this what pentax should do.
this machine will put samsung on the right way .they forget no thing exept for puting canon or nikon name
This cool camera received almost the same reaction as k01. pentax with this small and different camera got some lights at a crowdy market!altough pentax is a small company but it used to offer a different concepts and smart solutions for photography than the big boys used to offer.since the 30d and d200 has been released canon and nikon did not offer what should be offer from a big company.. so one can say :pentax is shaking the market from time to time!!
I think dpr used to not release a complet review for such a camera.so this preview may be will be the last thing !!
the k3 produce amazing details at base ISO. 3200 ISO is k5 series like.6400 and above is another story!my 2 cents!
what is this camera for.It is not d800 mp or D4 powerful or d610 price.it is full of controls that no space size to hold it easy.
If It was APS/C sensor like the old R1 I would go with this new one .But It is still wonderful tool from sony!
Well done Pentax as usual .thanks Richo for keeping k 5 body!
zakaria: thanks for the very quick review and for this effort . Hope to see something similar to the Pentax k50
sorry I meant a quick review for pentax
thanks for the very quick review and for this effort . Hope to see something similar to the Pentax k50
arhmatic: Look! it's got a movie record button!
Seriously, it's got several features that I wish my x-e1 had, such as better screen, supposedly better movie, wireless, etc, for just half the money I paid less than a year ago...
this is a pen type and good way to atttact new buyrs to the fuji system.
whtchocla7e: The world needs more ugly viewfinder-less cameras!!
I suggest to add a new rumors window on dpr front page , where rumors today become a source of information..In all cases, it will be treated as just rumors, not news. .
This camera in my opinion as a concept will not die.
keep the k mount and take the brand name to the planet!
what a smart camera!I like the concept ,the ergonomics,the trusty sensor and THE PRICE.
Well done pentax.It is time to be #3 in dslr market.and this will be a fact soon!I like the k50 concept.does it has focuss peaking!
I think almost samples are soft and the bokeh is normal.
This is a fair and excellent review.thanks dpr.I like the simple and comperhensive round up..and thanks pentax for gaining the most benfit of this old but trusty sensor.sorry for my bad english
I also have fa 35 f2.It is very sharp wide open .I like this lens .thanks pentax for keeping it in product untill now. what about a fa 35 f1.4 at the same shape and price!
